Fresh garbage
Fresh garbage

Look beneath your lid some morning,
See those things you didn't quite consume
The world's a can for your fresh garbage

    My InterpretationCould be about the environment or it could be sociological.

    The sociological interpretation
    LID = Head, so BENEATH YOUR LID = brain, mind.
    THOSE THINGS YOU DID NOT QUITE CONSUME = Ideas one doesn't quite "get" or have an understanding of.
    THE WORLD'S A CAN FOR YOUR FRESH GARBAGE = society blindly and stupidly accepts nonsense that ignorant people spout about things they don't even really understand.

    General CommentBack in the 60's I really dug this song. I probably hadn't heard it in 4 decades, but Wow! It's as good as I remembered. It was never too popular on AM radio but it still should be a rock classic. Who knows what the lyrics mean? It might be an environmental song or it might be an analogy of some other type of "garbage" we keep under our secret lid.

    Song MeaningRandy California or one of the other members in an interview stated there was a garbage workers strike in Los Angeles county or at least it impacted on Topanga Canyon. He said he went outside and there was mounds of fresh garbage.
